eTrain: Fulfilling NCUA’s Financial Literacy Requirements for Directors

Presented by Tim Harrington, CPA, President, Team Resources, Inc.
How's your credit union doing? No, really, how is your credit union doing? As a Board Member of a federal credit union, you have an obligation to know and understand how your credit union is doing . . . financially.

New NCUA Regulation 701.4 (b)(3) requires that federal credit union board members be financially literate, able to understand their credit union’s Balance sheet and Income Statement and “ask appropriate, substantive questions of management.”

Get the knowledge you need to satisfy that requirement from Tim Harrington, C.P.A., at this two-part webinar. You’ll examine the Balance Sheet and Income Statement, and get a solid basic knowledge of key ratios, profit and capital, risk management, and asset/liability management. You’ll even receive a certificate of completion as proof of your training.

Attend both days of the program for the cost of one Internet connection!
